Re: Could Eubank's unique style have given Hopkins big problems?
Eubank could definitely pose some problems for Hopkins and win some rounds, but his footwork on the front-foot was pretty poor (Hopkins doesn't really excel in this area either, but he's better than Eubank). Hopkins, being the better ring general, probably takes this in a clear decision.
If a prime B-Hop were around in the late 80s/early 90s era, I think Herol Graham and Michael Nunn would've been tough fights, Toney and McCallum could've very well beaten him, and Kalambay on his best night would've edged him. He chews up Benn and counterpunches the hell out of McClellan.
